Remember how I told you this sauce was one of the best I've ever eaten? Well when I wanted to figure out something to do with some mahi mahi I bought at Trader Joe's, I knew that sauce would be fantastic.
Guess what? It was! In fact, after I got done taking some pictures, I sent my fish swimming in this sauce. Literally. It was completely covered and I loved every minute of it. John devoured his, and I actually doubled the recipe to freeze some for a rainy day. I'm really getting into freezing sauces lately...Hmm...
For the record, you can't buy this sauce in a jar at the grocery store. My darling sister Meghan wanted to make the Chicken "Panini" with Basil and Mozzarella I made, but she didn't realize the sauce was homemade. So, she spent much time at the store looking for it. Alas, it was not found. So, click on the red Salsa Rossa link (ie the text that just said "Salsa Rossa" - ahem, Meghan).
My sister really is my best friend and I love her to death so hopefully she doesn't mind too much being the entertainment in this post...Love you Megs!
